We have so much fruit on our property, we decided to bake home made pies as gifts. Most thickening agents made the filling look cloudy and unappetizing; we found Clear Jel was what the pro's use. We tried it and now our pies are requested all year long.
This instant clear jel is great to use when making your fruit pies! It allows the flavor of the fruit to come out while thickening at the same. Spices age offers this product at a very reasonable price in comparison to other sites I have shopped.
Since I had never used Clear Jel before I wasn't prepared for how much I'd need or that it wouldn't all break down until completely mixed together, as well as how long it needed to cook. My second batch was better. Perhaps more detailed directions would have been helpful. There is no doubt I'll need to order more next summer, before I begin my canning.
This is exactly what I was looking for to can apple pie filling. I even ordered the wrong one by getting instant instead of cook type, the office girl was amazingly helpful and got what I needed out to me ASAP!
This worked better than I expected. In the past I used baking powder which is not recommended as it cannot handle the high heat of processing. I have given out some to 6 other people and they are planning on ordering it from your company. Again an excellent product.
I really like using Clear jel instant. I use it in the pies that I baked often for family and friends. I can apple pie filling and the Clear Jel makes the product look so good in the jars, there is no separation that usually happens using flour for thickening. I just wish my mother had known about the jel, she loved to bake and I guess it was passed on to me.I love it. I have used it for several years.
I like this product and plan on getting some more although I forgot what this substance is made out of. I'm a vegan so if I remember correctly it's not made from animals? sure beats cooking over a hot stove in the summer, just stir in your coconut milk with sweetener of your choice and you got a great pudding consistency.
I loved it! It gave my canned peach pie filling a much clearer-looking appearance than the cornstarch mixture. I couldn't find the amount to use in my receipe, so I used the amount same as cornstarch. I would like more info regarding amount conversion,if any/exchange for same amount. I was also pleased w/speed of receiving the product. I will be using your site again. Thanks much.
I bought Clear Jel Instant because I needed something that would survive freezing without separating, and this works pretty well. Also, needed it to make a fat free Italian salad dressing, but can't figure out how to keep it from clumping up.
